did you make any changes in /etc/modules-load.d or modprobe.d to enable your wi-fi card ? undo it.
or you could add a *.conf file to blacklist ath9k module.

Boot to live and check your root partition’s /etc (not live’s /etc) for these folders.

Ohh OK thanks I will do it and confirm if it works or not

No I haven’t done any changes

Then blacklist ath9k module, instructions here

removed the wifi card
attached the usb wifi dongle
did a clean install of manjaro kde
everything works fine now
@badbodh blacklisting didnt worked bro
anyways thank you to all
